31 Days of Awesome Relationships : : Day 25 : : A Gift of Caregiving Encouragements

Sooner or later, you're probably going to find yourself in the role of caregiver.  Or know and love someone who has donned that mantle.  More often than not, pouring your life into someone who needs you is not a sprint but a marathon.   Beyond exhausting, yet incredibly rewarding.  Tear-your-hair-out frustrating, yet possibly the most delightful blessing you might receive this side of heaven. 

Caring for someone else can be a priceless opportunity, an untold gift we both give and receive.  Navigating this season well allows our faith to be stretched, our character built, and our legacy redefined.  Minute by minute.  Hour by hour.  Day by day.

Over time, we tend to isolate when under stress.  But the good news is that you will run this leg of the journey in a healthier, stronger way if you can build a topnotch support team around you.   Here's a few links to guide you there:

Please don't go it alone.  Tuck this post in a safe place ... sooner or later you'll be glad you did.  There are resources right and left to come to your aid.  Just reach out and welcome those helping hands on board.  The journey will be a bit more joy-filled, the burden lighter, if you're courageous enough to do so ...
